Failed Critics Podcast: The Betmen

Welcome to the all new, rebooted FAILED CRITICS podcast on the WE MADE THIS podcast network!

This week, your host Steve Norman is joined by his very own Robin in Paul Field, these days chatting music on We Made This with the very successful We Buy Records podcast, who despite now having decamped post-Brexit Britain to the classical climes of Belgrade is here for plenty of main film cast about Matt Reeves’ brand new all-consuming comic-book blockbuster THE BATMAN–or as it’s known in Serbia, ‘The Betmen’.

Along the way, in News they chat about the ludicrous Film Twitter wish for Jeremy Renner; in What We’ve Been Watching, Steve has a close Encounter while Paul dodges a Moonfall. Meanwhile, in Recommendations, Paul takes The Guardian to task for a Netflix show they tore apart while Steve encourages us all to forgive Martin Freeman’s Scouse accent and try his new BBC cop show.

Plus! The Triple Bill returns, this week covering Best Recast Roles. Steve plays by the rules. Paul doesn’t. Are you at all surprised?

Join Steve and guests next time to discuss the return of kinkmeister Adrian Lyne as we rub our thighs over his new erotic thriller, DEEP WATER

Failed Critics Podcast (Reborn): The Failed Critics Rebirth Massacre

Welcome to the all new, rebooted FAILED CRITICS podcast on the WE MADE THIS podcast network!

Don’t panic, Mr Mainwaring, it’s as shambolic as ever as Steve Norman, your erstwhile host, is joined by new FC publisher & We Made This network chief, Tony Black, and one of FC’s legendary O.G.’s Matt Lambourne, for a brand new/exactly the same Failed Critics episode after 3 or 4 or 5 (who knows?) years away.

It’s business as usual as the boys talk Oscar 2022 news (including Matt’s pure apathy for it), in What We’ve Been Watching, Steve goes West Philadelphia born & raised to discuss Bel-Air, Matt discusses Reacher done right in the new Amazon show, and Tony waxes lyrical about the new NHS comedy drama This Is Going to Hurt.

The main feature this week is Netflix’s brand new Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which the lads thoroughly disagree on, and Steve hosts a Chainsaw-focused quiz all about. And they finish with Recommendations including the fall of Boeing and a very difficult & powerful conversation in Mass.

Join Steve and guests next time to discuss adopts growly voice The Batman

Failed Critics Podcast: Dunkirk

Is it their finest hour and 17 minutes?

With a stonking quiz hosted by guest Callum Petch, pitting hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes against each other, plus reviews of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled, 2016 mystery thriller Pet, and the extraordinarily awful documentary Extraordinary: The Stan Romanek Story, it might well possibly be!
